"...This wine has the X-factor - every sip is even better than the last."

A bright perfumed, supple expression of Marlborough pinot noir from clay hill slopes. Comprising six different pinot noir clones from vines dating back to 1983.

  • Hand picked and chilled overnight and handsorted. 85% destemmed and 15% whole bunches included. Fermented in small stainless open top fermenters with 100% indigenous yeasts over a period of 2 weeks prior to pressing into French oak barrels for eighteen months (40% new). Bottled without fining or filtration.

    Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
    Region: Marlborough, NZ
    ABV: 13.5%

  • 96 Points. Fragrant, aromatic pinot noir with seductive floral, cherry and subtle spicy flavours. Delicately succulent wine that has clearly been made with a light touch but has impressive power and a lengthy finish. This wine has the X-factor - every sip is even better than the last. 5 Stars - Bob Campbell MW
